I hold a BA in economics from USP (1998), a Master's degree in economics from Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (2001), and a PhD in economics from Duke University (2007). My research interests are on the history of postwar economics, in particular macro and monetary economics, with an emphasis on how modeling strategies and techniques had their use stabilized over time. I have published articles on this subject in leading journals of the field and a few book chapters.
